CNN Factchecker: RNC's Night Two Featured More Lies And Exaggerations

"There were a whole bunch of false claims."

CNN's Daniel Dale fact-checked the Republican National Committee's second night of speeches and said it was filled with false claims.

They only thing the RNC and Trump can run on are conspiracies, lies and distortions.

Dale tweeted this last night.

Daniel Dale said on CNN, "There were a whole bunch of false claims - some from Trump's own family."
